Tate Modern celebrates independents

There'll be art, film, music and performance in a weekend of organised mayhem
Since its millennium opening, Tate Modern has managed to transform the landscape for the contemporary visual arts in Britain. This week it celebrates its 10th anniversary by inviting 70 of the world’s most innovative, independent art spaces to take over the Turbine Hall. No Soul for Sale – a Festival of Independents will see an eclectic mix of art, performance, music and film throughout the weekend. Organised in collaboration with Italian conceptual artist Maurizio Cattelan (most famous for his dead Pope John Paul II struck by lightning), the weekend promises visitors a chance to experience a “pop-up village of global art”.
